Differences between grappling and jiu jitsu


Differences between grappling and jiu jitsu

The growth of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has boosted the popularity of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, making it a common practice among fighters. This phenomenon has popularized the term “grappling,” creating confusion over whether it is synonymous with Jiu Jitsu without a kimono or BJJ No-Gi , an assumption that turns out to be inaccurate.

What is Grappling?

Grappling refers to any combat system that excludes striking, unlike "Striking" . This category covers disciplines such as Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Luta Livre, Lucha Libre and Greco-Roman Wrestling, where the main objective is the submission of the opponent, although points can also be accumulated to win. For this reason, the term “ submission ” is often used.

How are Grappling and No-Gi BJJ different?

  • Competition rules vary. While No-Gi BJJ fights follow IBJJF rules applicable also in kimono competitions, grappling allows some techniques prohibited in BJJ.
  • Although it is a moot point, generally more time is spent fighting on the feet in grappling than in No-Gi BJJ.

What are the similarities?

The main similarity is the difficulty in achieving a good grip due to sweat, which requires applying more force than when fighting an opponent wearing a Jiu Jitsu kimono .
